We received some feedback from a Sonos user who would like to see Karaoke integration with Sonos. While Line-In can work for hooking up an existing Karaoke player, the user would like to see a more embedded Karaoke function on Sonos.

What are your thoughts?

As long as the input LEVEL is Line-in there is no danger to the speakers. What WILL be an issue for this use case is that the audio is delayed by around 70ms. So this means it will be pretty useless for Karaoke
Would love that.

Sonos Microphone: with its own cradle to charge it, it is always charged and ready to give it a go. Of course you can have several of them (installation similar to Play:x) so you one can all sing together.

Question is how to get the text on the iPad/tablet/PC/TV/etc. synced. In the spotify app maybe?
We have been trying to work out how to connect karaoke apps via Apple TV and how we can use that and microphone through our Sonas system. So the above suggestion would be super!!
Kararoke on Sonos will be wonderful. Have a Sonos soundbar connected to TV, during Karaoke, I have to plug the optical cable directly into the karaoke machine to avoid delay. It's not practical.
I know my wife would love this
Sonos Microphone with its own charging cradle, wireless of course. Always ready to go.

Multiple mics, set up follow similar routine as Play:x

How to sync the text in the app iPad/Android/PC/TV etc??? Spotify?
How would that work since the microphone audio would be delayed for digital conversion? You would never be able to sing along in real time.
Since apparently I can't "like" Stuart_W's post, I'll indicate my agreement with him by posting this. Sonos just isn't made for Karaoke (or computer speakers). Find some other system, there's lots out there.
Still not seeing how this is technically feasible... there is an encoding delay for any analog signal into Sonos so how can you sync things to sing along in real time?
It's a huge feature to be had; I don't like to sing Karaoke myself but there are many who does, for those that could make use of the feature, Sonos would be the best thing ever, might be the only reason they would dig deeper for a set of speaker. If you don't like Karaoke on your Sonos then simply don't use it.  
You've got me... my partner already murders enough of my favourite songs singing them without a mic and amplification! I fear adding this functionality may make me resent my Sonos system and launch it out the window... I would be saddened by that! Sonos, I beg you... if you implement this feature all I ask is that you hide it deep in the setting where my partner can't find it and do not advertise it! Many thanks from this music and Sonos lover... karaoke at home hater!
It's a must!!! I use my Sonos regularly for big parties. It would totally be ideal for karaoke - but even more so, a wireless mic would be brilliant for making announcements over the party music. With out a soundboard bridge the aux input alone on Sonos seems to have a lot of interference.

Our daughter loves singing… the only way we can do this at the moment is Connect YouTube karaoke to a Bluetooth (guitar style) amplifier /speaker using a smartphone , with a microphone connected to the amplifier. My husband is really against yet another Bluetooth speaker, which doesn’t integrate with sonos.  We have a playbar in our lounge so would love to be able to use this instead, for karaoke fun. 

I think I can use line-in or Sonos connect for karaoke. My question is that whether that will break the speakers because I read stereo speakers are not suitable for karaoke.
A Sonos microphone and/or mic adapter kit tied in with a karaoke app like Karafun would be fantastic
I would also use this a LOT
I would absolutely LOVE to have this feature. We always have to use some weird setup for karaoke, and this would be simply an amazing feature to have.
Bring it on !!! Absolute game changer for Sonos
Can you pretty please do this Sonos.
it will be a killer.. sonos being so much into music.. it absolutely makes sense... it will be one more feather to sonos hat.
Any update on this....would absolutely love this feature. 
I am sold & my wife would love me for evermore - name your price!

Yes, please program this feature! We have a cheap Karaoke machine and would much rather hear Karaoke on our Sonos players.
I would also like to see this feature - I am forced to use connect mixer w/ separate stereo system b/c there is voice delay if I route the mixer o/p to TV and Playbar
